    I wanna know what hole he saw there?

    It looked like he got the brake and gas pedals confused.

    The LMP cars are faster than the GT cars; he probably could have made the turn, but it looks like the Ferrari didn't know he was coming. Though, I guess that's one of the challenges you have to take into consideration with different classes on the track at the same time. Definitely driver's fault.

    Those walls suck. That thing ramped the sand pit and if not for that tire ending up under the chassis it would have definetly gone over.

    Yup,
    The closing speed on those LMP's vs the GT's is insane. I'm surprised they run out there together.

    one of the things i love about this type of racing is the fact that there are so many different types and classes of car out there on the track dealing with each other

    causes some interesting passing opportunities/challenges

    instead of watching a conga line of cars circling the track

    keeps things interesting
